BTS’s Suga Strives To Understand What Happiness Is In Hopes To Help Others Like Him
Aside from these topics, also plays a huge role in emphasizing the importance of acceptance and breaking down stereotypes and barriers in the world.
He also continues to educate and teach himself about what happiness is and how to achieve it.
During our tour last year we talked a lot about happiness. We talked about what happiness is and what we need to do in order to be happy. When I try to be happy, I think that I am someone that can never be happy. But I still think that we all need to try and be happy no matter what. We have to study and research how to be happy. Ever since I was young, I always thought about what happiness is and what I need to do in order to achieve it. I don’t think anyone has ever taught me about this. If we talk about it, I think a lot of people will talk about it too.

Why do you want to get a psychological counseling certificate?
Well, I don’t know. I guess so that when I meet someone like me I have something I can say to them? Actually I think quite a lot and when I see people like me I want to be helpful in any way that I can?

He also realized that the struggles and pain people were enduring were all a common theme throughout the young generation around the world.
When I was younger, I received a lot of comfort from music and it became my outlet. But as time passed by, I realized that despite the values that are formed, teenagers and people in their twenties weren’t receiving healthy messages through music and it was disappointing to see. And this doesn’t seem to be limited to Korea. The pain, sadness, trouble that teenagers and young adults are going through are common all over the world. I hope that people will be comforted through the lyrics and in turn bring more healthy music into the world.

He hopes that his music and his message can help anyone who is having a hard time trying to find happiness in this harsh world.
The reason I started making music was because I grew up l listening to lyrics that talked about dreams, hopes, and social issues. When I made music, those things came naturally to me.
